High Performance Composites - Industry Market Research, Market Share, Market Size, Sales, Demand Forecast, Market Leaders, Company Profiles, Industry Trends

Demand in the US for high performance composites (polymer materials reinforced with advanced fibers) is forecast to rise 5.3 percent per year to $10.0 billion in 2020. This will represent a deceleration from the rapid advances achieved during the 2010-2015 period, when composite demand experienced tremendous growth as Boeing’s 787 DREAMLINER, which is comprised of over 50 percent composites, began deliveries. Going forward, high performance composites demand from aerospace applications will rise at a more moderate pace, but the industry will experience tailwinds from markets such as wind energy and pressure vessels, which are smaller but faster growing. High costs and labor-intensive production methods will continue to prevent these materials from expanding into higher volume and price-sensitive markets.
